Drop Lingard: 62% of Man Utd fans want this attacker to start against Arsenal instead

The Man Utd fans in the Transfer Tavern are looking forward to their side’s clash with Arsenal this weekend.

It’s a game that, in the past, has been hugely important in the context of the season – but this tie has decidedly less riding on it. Both sides haven’t got much to play for in the Premier League, and so this one is all about pride.

The Man Utd fans in the pub would love to get one up on their red rivals, and so they’re eager for Jose Mourinho to get another win over his old rival Arsene Wenger.

It will be interesting to see who Mourinho selects to play, but one player that fans seemingly want to see play is Frenchman Anthony Martial.

Martial is seemingly on course for the exit door at Old Trafford this summer, with Jose Mourinho often not selecting him to play.

Man Utd fans, though, want to see that change this weekend. We recently polled supporters on the prospect of Martial coming in for Jesse Lingard this weekend, and though both players had some support – Martial just edged it.

In the end, 62% of fans voted in favour of Martial, whilst just 38% of fans voted in favour of Jesse Lingard.

Both have looked good this season, but it’s fair to say that Martial deserves far more minutes than he has been getting as of late, and Lingard would the obvious player to make way.

It will be interesting to see who Mourinho ops to select, but the Man Utd fans clearly know how they feel on the matter.
